We are very thankful - a note from the Rumblemum

Hi all,

There is no Thanksgiving in New Zealand (and I miss it very much, I loooooove turkey!) This year though, we have our own Thanksgiving.

You may remember Rumbles being very ill about 6 months ago, and they found his heart was enlarged. Yesterday he had to go to the heart specialist for them to check his progress and see what happens next.

We are so thankful that his heart hasn’t gotten any worse, and his liver function is good as well (it wasn't last time). We are so thankful that he's happy, and zooming around and just generally being a wonderful boy.

Hammy was thankful when he came home - poor Ham was home alone all day, and I think he realised how much he loves his big bro.

And I'm thankful for all of you who were so kind when Rumbles was sick. I hope you're all having a Thanksgiving, no matter where you are in the world. :)

I am thankful for BOOTIFUL ladycats, tuna, the Rumbleparents, all my friends,
 and my favourite chair (ok... and Hammy)

Good news from the specialist is something to be thankful for. Hopefully Rumbles is one of those kitties whose big heart never gives him any trouble. We know it makes him a big lover boy!

You could always make a chicken and pretend you are giants eating thanksgiving turkey. :-) Just serve with baby carrots and fingerling potatoes for the full effect.

We are sorry to be late but would like to say how thankful we are that Rumbles is doing well, and that you are our friends, over there, far, far away!

By the way, naughty Tommy got hold of Tama-Chan's prize kiwi and ripped his beak and face off. We were desperately saddened and would love to order a new one. Could you let us know how to go about it?

Purrs,
The Chans
